Overcoming The Loss Of Self-confidence After The Death Of A Family?
, Good night. It’s been 1 month since the death of my uncle, who was very close to me. Daya felt not myself, I felt strange. I’m like disconnected from my past, I don’t forget anything but when I’m done doing something, for example school. After school I feel like I didn’t do that, I often think of my late uncle. We used to be so close, even before he breathed his last I had time to take care of him, what do you think? Thank you
Thanks for the question. Experiencing a traumatic event such as the loss of a close person is one of the stressors for a person. In general, if a person experiences a stressor, that person will have their own way of protecting themselves with a psychological defense mechanism. What you experience is one of the psychological defense mechanisms to deal with these stressors. The defense mechanism you may experience is dissociation. Dissociation is a psychological defense in which a person feels lost time and memory about an event or other person to separate themselves from the world temporarily and this condition occurs subconsciously. Not infrequently the person will be often daydreaming. Psychological defense mechanisms are a natural thing to happen but if this becomes a disturbance to your daily activities, please immediately consult a psychologist for further treatment. Usually a psychologist will help you by providing psychological therapy.
Also do the following suggestions:
get closer to your family and friends, tell those closest to you about the sadness you feel busy yourself with doing activities that make you happy or exercising regularly slowly try to accept reality and instill in your mind that you must continue to live life Hope this information is useful.
